I Hope You Had a Great Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! 

We celebrated with my sisters, their kids and my parents. We had snack type foods, and played games all Thanksgiving day.

Today (Saturday) we went over to my aunt's house to have a big meal. Everyone brings something. There we played Rummikub. I'm glad I brought my game, and my aunt had a set. We had 2 games going.

Thankfully both days were good days, for playing outside. The kids were free to run around. Now (Saturday night) we're in a snow storm watch. That's the crazy thing about Nebraska - it's jacket weather one day and freezing cold the next.


I've had a mini pie maker for a few years, but this is the first year I used it. Have you ever had something you bought or acquired, but hardly used it? I acquired the mini pie maker from my Mom's Cousin. This year I put it to use! I made 13 mini pumpkin pies for one event, and eight or nine pies for the other get together. No left overs.

I've never been successful with making pie crust, but want to try someday. There's this post I found that shows step-by-step instructions in making pie crust. I encourage you to try it out! Here it is: The next time I make pies I'm following the All Butter Pie Crust Recipe

Isaak and Travis helped me make a turkey veggie tray. They helped a lot because I had to quickly go to the store to get dip. We hardly have dip at home, so I forget that some people only have veggies with dip. The dip was barely touched. Ha!

How was your Thanksgiving? What food did you make?

I love your turkey veggie tray! My niece made one from crackers and a cheese ball. I just made the chocolate caramel pie and Jason smoked and extra turkey to take to his parent's house.

I love both how the turkey came out. Too cute! We made turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberries and pies. I feel like I'm missing something though. lol

Glad to hear you had a good Thanksgiving! Those mini pies look yummy.
